With the EDLT deadline quickly approaching, we’re hearing a lot of questions from schools who want to comply with ELDT while also adapting their training due to the pandemic.

Hiring and training drivers the old-fashioned way is expensive. Manually pulling MVRs and deciphering violation codes takes 20+ minutes per applicant, and onboarding new drivers is time-consuming and expensive, but it doesn’t have to be.
